Good evening, felinity assembled, Elvira here!
On March 5 Daddy Kiril will turn 53 years old.
On the same day Nikita turns 76! Um, I mean 15 (in Cat years)!
Actually, for a pair of old men, they are pretty frisky for their ages. :-D
I really love my guys!
Now, let's begin the Carnival.
1 and 2. Let's begin with some very important news, as shared in a pair of posts by Mom ML of KC & the Giggleman Gang...
One of the earliest of cat bloggers has gone to Rainbow Bridge and her kitties are in need of rescue in the aftermath.
Queen Mom Rose of the blog QM Rose & the Royals is gone and the cats were almost put down!
Rose was in rehab, for some medical issues, when she died.
ML is doing wonders to help the 3 cats, even as she lives in Maryland and they in NJ.
Donations and offers of adoption have been coming in.
There is more to this sad story, so check out her report.
She also reports that the beloved KC is going to a different vet for a second opinion about her own medical conditions.
Daddy Kiril, Nikita and I all miss hearing from ML & KC, and seeing them active in the cat blogging community they have been an important and special part of for so many years. Our purrs and prayers are with them all!
3. Next, over at CatSynth, with Luna in the mood for something the humans call "Modernism".
4. Rascal and Rocco, 2 brothers, are certified insane...this story show why, in the case of Rascal, at least. A very funny story. :-D
5 and 6. There's a Cat in the Fridge! It writes poetry, too! Haiku, of a sort, if you can believe it!
